I brought out my summer sandals and found that the suede insoles were very soiled looking. See below.
I remembered my mother saying that you could clean suede with sandpaper. I thought, 'Wow, that's weird' and it stuck in my head. So I tried it!
Guess what? It WORKS!!
Has anyone ever tried this?
I think it will work on any brushed leather (suede)... but be careful when trying this... try an inconspicuous place first. In my case, it didn't matter because I was ready to throw these sandals out. So whether I ruined them, it didn't matter. But it worked!!! YAY!
I made this recipe of laundry detergent for $2.49, which lasted a month for my family of 5 - roughly 40 loads of laundry. I have been very happy with how clean out clothes are and it's great for my kids who have skin allergies.
My sister finally gave up smoking 2 years ago but the smoke smell is still in the car. She was told it would cost $600.00 to remove it as they would have to take the car apart. Is there another way of getting rid of this smell. Thank You
I need help! I live in the Phoenix area and have not adjusted to the dust from the environment. When I dust furniture using the common aerosol sprays, 5 minutes later the furniture has
more dust on it as if the spray attracts the dust. When the pet cat walks across it the foot prints are maximized and looks worse than when I started. What can I use to eliminate the dust and not have prints and smears?
This is a great multi-purpose soft scrub type cleanser because it is easy to make, inexpensive, gentle on your hands, smells great, and stores well. You can use it to clean sinks, counter-tops, toilets, the shower and so much more!
